ABOUT FIRST AMENDMENT LAWYERS ASSOCIATION

The First Amendment Lawyers Association (FALA) is a not-for-profit, nation-wide association of hundreds of attorneys devoted to the protection of Free Expression under the First Amendment, who represent businesses and individuals engaged in constitutionally protected activities. Formed in the mid-1960s, FALA’s members practice throughout the United States, Canada, and elsewhere in defense of the First Amendment and free speech and, by doing so, advocate against all forms of governmental censorship.  FALA often appears amicus curiae in the Supreme Court and other appellate courts in cases in which First Amendment issues are at stake, and its members have been involved in many of the landmark cases that helped define and strengthen protections for freedom of expression.
